Judith A. Downie writes: “‘Who’s collecting San Diego’s beer history?’ This question—asked by Char Booth, California State University San Marcos Library associate dean, during a brewing science certificate proposal review in 2016—launched what would become the Brewchive at CSUSM Library. In 2018, the archive received the ALA John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award. Brewchive planning began in 2016 with a small advisory group of local brewing-industry professionals. We decided to focus on evidence of personal and business brewing activity in San Diego County from the 1980s to the present.”
